4. Class achievement: How can you measure class
achievement? Written tests and performance tests are
the two primary methods of measurement. These tests
give you, the instructor, an idea of how well you pre-
sented the material. Prepare your written tests before
class, using the IG as a source topic to test. Include only
questions that are based on the need- to-know informa-
tion that you presented during the lecture or demonstra-
tion. Prepare your performance tests in the same way
as you do written tests. Require each student to perform
the procedure while another student assists. If neces-
sary, you can prepare job sheets to help the students
in a particularly complex procedure. Also, two students
may take turns performing the same procedure as you
observe and grade their performances. Wherever a haz-
ardous condition may exist, always emphasize safety
precautions on the job sheet.
